I'll be demo'ing some felting and a few other techniques I use (and probably finishing up the clasps on these cuffs too!).

Part studio portrait - totally fibre friday. I took my work outdoors during lunchbreak on Thursday.
Experimenting with adding embroidery threads to the wire crochet. Looking good, I think - a kind of stiff wire brocade. I hope to have a selection of these as cuffs next Sunday for Coquitlam's Canada Day celebration next door to the Evergreen gallery in Town Centre Park.

Mainly art clay greenware ready for firing if I can pluck up the courage to use my new incendiary device. My new torch is so hot it can melt glass (not kidding - pic to follow as evidence).
Currently thinking: oh crap, I need to make new inventory.
Currently wondering: where is my creative spark?
Currently planning: two new gallery pieces for the con:text project.
A busy bench = a (too) busy mind

Knitting with ribbon mesh yarn - frill seeker by Estelle. Not completely convinced but it's an interesting technique making waves and ruffles by knitting in the edge of the mesh.
There is a free pattern download at estelleyarns.com, with links to a YouTube tutorial.
